Zoom Camera setting
Settings (WIndows Desktop app) only allows choice of front/rear camera (MS Surface Pro). It needs to allow zoom function so that the zoom of camera for video conferencing is preset based on preference. Currently no way possible to zoom in the camera setting for your own camera.

I have a "Microsoft (!!) LifeCam Studio" and no option in Teams to control it!
Please implement camera settings/zoom in Teams!

Agree with prior comments. My company-sanctioned wide-angle camera is horrible to use in Teams. It shows my entire room with no options to zoom in or change the display settings in any way.
I followed the Logitech instructions to set up my view via the Microsoft "Camera" app, but unfortunately those settings do not carry over to Teams. My company does not allow us to install any programs that others have used to circumvent the lack of camera settings in Teams (such as setting them in Skype for Business which will then update the view in Teams; we don't have Skype for Business and I don't have the ability to install it). So I am stuck with a wide-angle view showing my entire room rather than just showing my actual face. It's very distracting if my dog walks in or out of the room, or if my husband is also working from home as he sits a few feet away from me.
I shouldn't be surprised anymore about the lack of features in Teams as it has been nothing but a disappointment and cause of frustration, but I still can't believe there are no camera settings whatsoever, and/or that it doesn't use the settings from Microsoft's own "Camera" program!!
This needs resolved ASAP. I can't even use Logitech Capture to change settings as the reset every time I launch Teams. Come on Microsoft...Really? I can't adjust zoom?
Tim H. below said it best "Skype/Lync had the option to zoom in (I don't need the audience seeing the widescreen shot of the room). I don't understand why Teams doesn't have this basic functionality."
the only way to change the zoom is in Skype, after restarting teams it then works. That is just too complicated.

I use a Logi camera with my second monitor. The camera works great in every way except with Teams. With Teams it is zoomed in way too close and there is no way to zoom out.

Skype/Lync had the option to zoom in (I don't need the audience seeing the widescreen shot of the room). I don't understand why Teams doesn't have this basic functionality. It becomes especially important with external webcams that may be mounted further away than an integrated laptop camera.
My camera works fine in de W10 “camera app”. Also in Zoom. But Teams automatically zooms in. I don’t want that. I bought a wide angle camera because I need it in my teaching. Please fix that.
Frustrating that I can't adjust the camera settings. At the moment everyone gets a great view of my room!
The alternative is to connect an Angekis zoom camera. We prefer the One Touch which only needs a USB cable. This means that there is a camera, loudspeaker, microphone and integrated echo canceller. This wide angle camera is suitable for individuals or groups. With AI Auto Framing, the camera zooms in on one or more people.With a precise single speaker tracking function, it also tracks the speaker on the whiteboard or flipchart.
Wide angle conference room camera is good for multiple people, but not for single person. Zoom and crop settings would be useful
Please also include the function to disable auto zoom for when teams cannot track you correctly with autozoom giving weird results.
Agree - teams is lagging behind all other collaboration applications!
Right now camera too wide for a single person. Option of portrait and landscape.. or just zoom

The completely missing Webcam setting are super annoying and very unprofessional. My cam is very wide angled, so others see more of my room than me. Skype for Business has some webcam settings, why does Teams have not?
